Sparkly Glitter New Years Slime Recipe

Sparkly Glitter New Years Slime Supplies

Elmer’s Washable Clear School Glue – 1 cup (240 ml). This glue is my favorite for all kids art and craft activities. We make a lot of slime, and having a gallon has been a good investment for us.

Baking Soda – 2 teaspoons (10 ml)

Contact Solution with boric acid as an ingredient – 2 tablespoons (30 ml) (<< this brand works!)

Jumbo Glitter – we found this rad glitter at Michaels

Step 1:

Pour Elmer’s Washable Clear Glue into your mixing bowl. Elmer’s is the only glue I would recommend for this slime, and now they sell it in a gallon container so you can make (almost) endless batches of stretchy slime.

Step 2:

Pour in baking soda and stir until well-blended with the glue. It will look make the glue look foggy.

  1. Thank you for this recipe! My toddler and I had tried to make slime over the summer and it didn’t work at all. I’m guessing wrong contact solution. She has been playing with this for over a hour now. #win at every level. Happy New Years!
